So few of us manage to read enough these days, particularly books of real substance, we are besotted with instant web text.
Reading is a dialogue with ourselves, it is self-reflection, which cultivates profound humanity. Reading is essential to our self development.
It expands and enriches the personality like a seed that germinates after a long time and sends forth a multitude of blossom-laden branches.
People who can say of a book ‘this changed my life’ truly understand the meaning of inner happiness. Reading that sparks inner revolution is urgently needed to help us escape drowning in the rapidly advancing information society.
Reading is far more than simple intellectual ornamentation, it is a battle for the establishment and preservation of the self, a ceaseless challenge that keeps us young and vigorous.
